“Nice dinner with initial difficulties”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013 via mobile

We had a dinner with business friends and could only get a reservation for 9 p.m., until we have been seated it was 9:30 pm. The place got more and more empty while we waited for our dishes. Services was very friendly and food good but we expected a bit more. May be it was the wrong day...

“A Venice treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

I've been going to Joe's for years, and each time is better than the last. The food and service are impeccable and the ambiance is classy. Excellent menu selection and extension wine list. Grab a table in the back patio if you can, where it's a little more spacious. Joe's is a little pricey, but great for a special occasion.

“Eat at Joe's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Joe's never disappoints: from the terrific seasonally inspired dishes to the attentive, but not instrusive wait staff, I give Joe's one of my highest recommendations.
